Commenting on the latest set of retailers to be announced at Resorts World Birmingham,

Managing Director of Development Steve Myers said; 

As we reveal more of the retailers who will be part of the retail mix at Resorts World Birmingham the greater I believe we are creating the right environment for the West Midlands first major outlet shopping experience.  We have an exciting and diverse range of High Street retailers who all bring unique product ranges to our overall offer.
We have worked hard to make Resorts World Birmingham a truly unique destination. Our mix of high profile tenants who do what they do brilliantly and the exciting new bar and restaurant concepts we have created specifically for this development merge together to form Europe’s first large scale resort destination. From the 21st October when over 2/3rds of our retailers open their doors and the subsequent weeks when Resorts World Birmingham becomes fully operational our guests will be able to experience the unique atmosphere and offer of a resort destination.
